About Kellie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs


Open space, love all around, and most importantly, NO kennels!


Greetings! My name is Kellie, an avid dog lover-PreK teacher-mom-wife! I offer 8 years of experience hosting dogs, so it works well that I offer my home to your sweet pups via DogVacay. Beyond the 8 years of actively caring for dogs, I've advocated for dogs through assisting at White Rock Dog and have a genuine lifetime experience of a loving upbringing with many dogs in my own home.

I work as a teacher a few short hours per day, offering about 80% of my free time to being at home. My 6-yr-old daughter, Isabella, also adores dogs, and is very mature with her understanding of caring for pets. Our dear companion, Sugarbear, an 9-yr-old Corgi, has always lived as an only pet in our household. She is an only dog in our household and always in need for new doggie friends to play with. Your dogs will be catered to, per your requirements, and will receive lots of attention, exercise and love! You can travel knowing there will always be someone present at home to look after your dog.

Your dog will become part of the family, and I am open to bathing your dog (as an extra service, if needed), giving them daily walks and outdoor play time, rubbing their bellies and even reading to them.

**For those who have Apple products, FaceTime is available at our home if you wish to see and talk to your dog! Otherwise, it is imperative to me, and to you, that I continuously keep you updated with text/picture messages to ensure your dog's safety and put you at ease.

We have a LARGE backyard for those energetic dogs who like to run and play, plenty of indoor space for lounging and bone-chewing, as well as a safe and family-oriented neighborhood to take your dogs on nice walks.

Conveniently located 5 Miles East of Downtown Dallas. We are also within 5 miles of a 24-hr pet hospital for emergencies.

I am open to sitting dogs of all sizes.

NO AGGRESSIVE BREEDS/TENDENCIES! PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS.

Take Care,

Kellie

Kellie is like my dog's second mom. She took great care! My dog was happy and relaxed and comfortable. Awesome backyard! Highly recommend.
Kelli did an awesome job with Lila. She sent pictures and described what Lila was doing. Lila seemed to have a great time and enjoyed the back yard as well as the other dogs. She also did well with Kelli's little girl. We'll definitely use Kelli again when the need arises.

My dogs always seem happy and look like they are well taken care of with Kellie. She keeps us updated with pictures and video.
Kelly is a fantastic host! She took great care of Jerry and was super flexible with drop off & pick up times. We knew he was in excellent hands the whole time, but loved getting photo updates from her (we missed our boy!). :) We're already planning to book another stay with her!

First time using Dogvacay services. I was very pleased and comforted by the attention that mrs Bella received while away on vacation. Kellie was sweet to update me, and report back on regular bases.
Kellie and her family were wonderful! They did an excellent job of taking care of our dog, Sadie. Sadie felt right at home and loved their daughter as well. Kellie was great at sending me texts and photos to update me on how our dog was doing. We have used Kellie twice already and would definitely recommend her!

Kellie and her family were great! Worked well with my hectic vacation schedule, making drop off and pick up a breeze. My pup had a great time playing in the backyard with the other dogs and is already ready to go back for another a little vacation of his own! A++++

Kellie was absolutely wonderful!
Kellie was gave us updates and was very flexible with pick up times since our return flight wasn't as expected. She was great!!! The dogs seemed very happy.
Kellie was a great host! I instantly felt comfortable when meeting her; she and her family were so sweet and loving to my Chiweenie, Freddie. Kellie also graciously accommodated some last-minute schedule changes and communicated frequently and in a very timely fashion. She also sent updates regularly. I would highly recommend Kellie and plan to book with her again in the future!

Great experience :)
Kellie is a very caring person and dogsitter. This was the second time I had used her. She cares for your pet just as though she was the owner. My dog has special needs and Kellie doesn't mind tending to those needs. I will continue to use her. She meets my price range and my pet loves her and her family.

Kellie and her family were great and Captain seemed right at home! I could tell he had been well cared for and it was great to have the flexible pick up and drop off time.
Thanks for taking care of my sweet Daisy and for working with Ian on the drop off and pick up! I hope you enjoyed her company.
My first time using dogvacay and could not be happier. Kellie was very easy to work with and during our visit we met her adorable daughter and Stuart explored her large fenced yard. During his stay Kellie texted me often with updates and photos. This was a great experience and I highly recommend Kellie and DogVacay.

Yet again another wonderful vacation for Lexi with Kellie, Sugar and her family. Lexi was so pleased to see us when we collected her, but I think she was sad to leave her friends Sugar and Kellie.
Kellie, her husband and lovely daughter were wonderful. They took care of my little girl Lexi for 4 days and Kellie did a wonderful job. Lexi is very attached to me and gets terribly depressed when i am not around; Kellie kept me updated with photos and a text every day and left me completely reassured. There were other dogs having their vacation with Kellie and I was so nervous that Lexi would struggle to join in; she did join in and it seems she had a great time. I can offer the highest recommendation and will certainly be asking Kellie to take care of Lexi again.

Kellie and her family were so good to my pup that I swear she was sad to leave their house. She came home happy, well fed, clean, and... exhausted! We will definitely be using her again when we go out of town and can't bring our pup. Thanks Kellie for taking such good care of our fur child!!

I had to find someone to take care of my shih tzu last minute and I'm glad I chose Kellie. She was very flexible an personable and took great care of my pooch, including giving her medications. It was a great experience overa. :) l
Lincoln had a great time staying with you guys! Thank you for the flexibility with our meetup and with pickup times. I will definitely be checking with you next time I need a sitter.
I was very pleased with my virst dog vacay experience. Kellie was great, and made me feel very comfortable about leaving Bunny for the weekend. She sent me an update & pictures which was great! Would definitely recommend Kellie to anyone looking to send their pup on a vacay!

Kellie did a great job making Scooby feel welcome! Had to come home a day early and Kellie was able to accommodate the change in schedule. I really appreciate Kellie taking such good care of Scooby!
Kellie was GREAT!! She worked around my travel schedule. Even though I was going out of the country, I contacted her when I could and she kept me informed on how my furbaby was doing. I would recommend Kellie highly. Scot T requires medicine and she didn't hesitate on giving that. I gave a lesson on how to give it before I left him. I almost cried when I left him, you know how mommies are with their babies, LOL. I plan on using Kellie again in the future.

Great reservation! Kellie was really flexible with dates during the holiday, and our pup was really excited to be back with us after the stay. Highly recommend!
Great host! Nice people, big back yard and a happy dog!
Kellie took great care of our dogs! She was wonderful about sending updates and flexible when it came to pick up and drop off times. As a stay at home mom she's especially good for people who want someone to be there with their pet. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Kellie was great from start to finish. The dogs and I had a chance to go meet her and her family a few weeks prior to our stay, and it was a great opportunity for all of us to ask questions and generally get to know each other. Even though one of my dogs can get a bit anxious in certain situations, Kellie handled everything with ease. My boys seemed to have a great time and were definitely well-cared for! I appreciated the periodic updates on them and the photos. I will definitely use Kellie again next time I need to go out of town.
